I was shopping with my girls and we found some amazing silk fabric in downtown LA with a galaxy print.
It was almost 3D, the print was so realistic, like a photograph.
We had to buy it!
Plus, I couldn't believe I found this silk for five dollars a yard.
My daughter wanted me to make her a dress for her birthday party.
After coming up with a few sketches for her to peruse, this was the design that she was excited about.
A bandeau top with an elastic encased skirt and the high low thing going on at the hem.
I think it's a little racy for a teen but she loved this design and wanted something like it.
So I gave in.
One less dress to be bought at Forever 21!
If you would like me to post this pattern as a PDF, please leave a comment!
I am learning how to make and upload PDF patterns and this dress is so simple to make that I think it needs a tutorial and a pattern to go with it.
But first, I'd love to hear your opinion ...
Is this dress too racy for a 17 year old?
According to trend reporters, this galaxy fabric is going to be popular this season. Check out some dresses from some recent shows.
Christopher Kane's Galaxy print dress.
I love this little dress. I found this photo after I made my dress. I would love to try making the dress on the left and probably would have tried to knock this off if I had seen it, but my silk was a little too thin anyway. The dress above looks more like a thicker silk satin.
That neckline is gorgeous.
This dress retails for 2,195 dollars!
Here are a few more cosmic frocks:
Have a great week!
